Linda Keyworth Davis
August 25th, 1943 – February 11th, 2018

Linda was born on August 25th, 1943 in Boston, Massachusetts to R. Allen and Leontine Briggs Keyworth of Gardner, MA. She had three brothers and one sister. Linda is survived by her husband, William (78), three sons, Bowman (50), Russell (45), Nathaniel (39), one daughter, Katherine (41), and eight grandchildren. She attended Emma Willard High School in Troy, NY. She received a BA from Boston University and an MA in English from Duke University. She taught High School English at Keshequa Central High School in Nunda, NY for seventeen years. She lived in Rochester, NY for many years where her children grew up and went to school. In 1996, she and her husband, William moved to Holmes Beach, FL. Her interests included watching her favorite television show Judge Judy & the Winter Olympics, keeping up with her grandchildren and playing computer games. She loved to read and frequented the Holmes Beach Library.

She is remembered for years of work as the Vice President for the Manatee County affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in Florida. She was outstanding at supporting, educating, and advocating for families who had loved ones struggling with mental illness. Her constant assistance brought solace to innumerable families who turned to NAMI in a time of need.

She will be missed immensely by her family and friends. She was there to watch her own son go through a successful recovery from mental illness, and it brought a smile to her face to see her children have children of their own. Her death, though sad, was not precipitated by a prolonged period of pain and discomfort. Mom was a special person and we all loved her very much.

A private celebration of her life will be held in the near future.
